Sri Lanka steal win in 'incredible game'

Du Plessis and Quinton de Kock (55) put on 96 for the fifth wicket.

Proteas seam bowling allrounder Vernon Philander will miss the second Test against Sri Lanka which starts on Thursday at St George's Park.

But Perera, with only one previous test hundred to his name, continued to attack the bowling and, along with the stout rear-guard from Fernando, kept South Africa at bay. The home team, however, is not bringing in a replacement for Philander who plays only Test cricket. It left them with only six recognised batsmen.

Sri Lankan left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya claimed a five-wicket haul on his debut and sparked a South African collapse on the third day of the first Test on Friday.

Embuldeniya said that although the pitch was slower than on the first two days he had found the there was more bounce than in pitches in Sri Lanka.

The talented Theunis de Bruyn has collected nine Tests in nearly three years - and will gather a 10th if preferred to the uncapped Wiaan Mulder or fellow batsman Zubayr Hamza. Head coach Ottis Gibson confirmed the development, revealing that Philander could be out for almost two weeks.

Savea 'free' to go, says furious Toulon boss
Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal has told scrumhalf Rhys Webb that he is free to leave the French club and go back to Wales . Jerome Kaino, who left New Zealand a year ago to play for fellow French club Toulouse, also tweeted his support for Savea.

If he is not fit, it will simplify the decision of which seamer to omit, although there is also a possibility that all-rounder Wiaan Mulder may win a first cap.

If, as had been expected, South Africa had disposed of their sixth-ranked opponents by winning both Tests, South Africa would have closed the gap on India to four points.

Even if they win in Port Elizabeth they will drop two points further behind India - and if they lose or draw they will fall behind New Zealand, now in third place.

Gibson said there was no talk of revenge as South Africa tried to square the two-match series.

It was Sri Lanka's first victory in any format since October after tough tours to New Zealand and Australia, and whether they can back it up with a second heroic performance in Port Elizabeth will be the key question.

Opening batsmen Dimuth Karunaratne and Lahiru Thirimanne reduced the target to 276 by adding 28 without loss by tea.
